I use them just for the domain name and emails (I host somewhere else) and yeah they are cheap. I renewed my domains for 9 years I think for something like $6 per year per domain.

Not sure how their hosting is but I have a friend who uses it and says they are good for that too.

Their phone support has always been very good when I have needed it.

I used them to buy my domain(s). They called me after I bought my first domain and left me a message on my phone(I was to busy to answer), they also sent me a packet with some info in the mail. They seem good but they just advertise and want to get more out of you.

I am hosting them somewhere else right now. I have never hosted with them so I dont know how good they are for that. Everyone says they are not very good, I would know.

I say buy your domains they but host it somewhere else.

GoDaddy is my primary registrar -- nowadays I use them for all domain registrations I do. But that's all I use them for, is to register the domain. I don't use them for DNS, hosting, or anything else. I don't buy any of their additional services, even domain privacy or anything like that.

In my opinion they are the #1 top quality registrar available right now. I wouldn't use anyone else for domain registration. The prices are good, they offer free pushes, you really can't go wrong.

Go Daddy is cheap but they charge for alot of extras. I use 1and1 for my domains and hosting. I have used both and I just feel the 1and1 interface is easier to use than Godaddy. One major difference is that 1and1 includes private registration with their $7 prices and Godaddy makes you pay extra for it.

I have used Godaddy "custom" website. All they gave me was a template that they changed around, and then they charge $50 per month. So of course I just canceled.

Check other places and reviews before you buy.

Thanks

That's $600 a year. You should be able to get great hosting and hire someone to develop your site for way less than that.

I just started using godaddy for domain registration and for one site I'm about to start using their email service and possibly web hosting later on.

Generally for the complete package, I use www.siteground.com. They're a bit more expensive than godaddy, but they add a TONNE of value. I highly recommend it. They also have free software installation packages you can install in a short moment of time, site builders, webmail, mysql, and lots more. Been with them for about 4 years now, very happy with them :)

I have a few domains remaining with Godaddy, but the bulk are with Namecheap.com. I keep my hosting separate from my domain companies.

I have a number of domains with namecheap too. They're quite good for registering domains. I haven't checked out hosting etc with them yet. The thing with namecheap tho, their market for selling domain names have a limit of $250. Godaddy has no limits (I think) but their upselling and spamming is an overkill. Have to wade through tones of info to find the next button.

I've been hosting with hostgator.com for the past couple of years, and i'm happy with the service.
